The European Commission has endorsed the proposal of the Dutch telecoms regulator (ACM) concerning fixed and mobile termination rates. This proposal will bring termination rates – the fees operators charge each other to deliver calls from other networks - down to levels comparable with most other Member States. Since termination rates ultimately influence call prices paid by end users, and Dutch consumers already pay amongst the highest prices for phone calls in Europe, ACM's decision will have a positive effect on consumers and businesses in the Netherlands, while helping to create the conditions for a telecoms single market.
